  • Description

    Hi there!

    We are Eugenio (Italian) and Becky (Irish). We are new to Workaway since April 2024.
    We have been together for 12 years, living in Dublin. Last Nov 2023, we decided it was time to leave life in Ireland behind and open up to new possibilities for our future by going travelling & seeking out new experiences.

    As part of this journey, we wanted to be purposeful and use the time to connect with like-minded people and learn new skills in our areas of interest.
    We have a strong urge to leave behind the traditional 9-5 grind of life and connect back to nature & a more conscious way of living. Our dream is to own land, live sustainably in nature with animals and maybe create a wellness or retreat space to welcome others into. We want to engage in meaningful work that gives us purpose.
    In order to achieve this, we feel it is important to learn the skills needed in order to make this a reality and understand more as to what we want to create.

    We are very interested in opportunities connecting back to the land, growing organic fruit and vegetables, learning about permaculture, animal husbandry or apiculture (we'd love to produce our own honey), working with medicinal herbs, learning any alternative medicine or wellness practices, finding opportunities at eco lodges, farm stays or retreats to gain more insights. We would love to establish meaningful relationships with like-minded souls (humans, dogs and other animals).

    As people & as a couple, we are extremely open, honest & friendly with good intent and a lot of respect towards others.
    We work well on our own initiative but also take direction well & pick up new skills quickly once shown. We are dedicated & reliable people who value the experience available on Workaway & look forward to new opportunities to connect, learn & grow!
    We love to eat, (we don't drink or smoke), enjoy meeting new people & having good conversation, reading, music, walks in nature, and meeting new furry canine friends. We are also currently learning Djembe drumming so if you want a basic lesson, we would be very happy to show you!

    We have much gratitude for any opportunities that help us on our journey & look forward to connecting with you soon :)

    Eugenio & Becky.
